The BACP provide useful resources on what therapy is, what to expect and what the first session will be like.
Counselling can help empower you, increase your self-awareness and enable you to feel better equipped to face difficult challenges and feel more in control.
Counselling encourages you to make changes that are possible and desirable to your circumstances in order for you to move forward and live your life fully and positively.
What to Expect
You will have the opportunity to meet in an accepting environment to talk in confidence about issues that are worrying you or causing you difficulties.
I work in partnership with you, at your own pace, exploring whatever issues you wish to discuss.
I will support you by offering a warm, non-judgmental relationship in which to develop a greater understanding and appreciation of yourself and to trust in your own sense of what is right for you.
Counselling can be ad hoc, short or long term. Sessions are usually at the same time weekly or fortnightly according to mutual arrangement. The therapeutic hour is 50 minutes.
Free Introduction Session
It is very important to find a therapist you feel comfortable with. To support this, I offer a free 20-minute introduction where we can meet each other online and also address any questions or concerns you may have regarding counselling and the counselling process itself.
How much does it cost?
- £70 per individual session.
- £100 per couple/relationship.
The initial consultation fee is £70 for individuals and £100 for couples/relationships. You do not need to commit to further sessions.
Occasionally I can offer concession rates of £60 to individuals in financial difficulty, low incomes or students. For counselling and psychotherapy students, the concession cost is £50. Please do not hesitate to enquire.
I accept payments by cash or bank/wire transfer.
